When I saw the flyer for a J. Lohr wine dinner at Marché Bacchus for just a little over $100, I jumped at the opportunity. Budget be damned.

Just for Locals: Project Neon Fatigue Syndrome

I’ve dubbed this irrational behavior as the Project Neon Fatigue Syndrome (PNFS).  I made it up.

The Peculiarity of Wine

By necessity, Pinot and I have an open relationship. While I regularly taste, assess, and enjoy other wines, Pinot is always my first love and the one I return to nightly. It is sensual. It is luxurious. Hedonistic, even.

Queen! Freddy Mercury! Adam Lambert! The Strip! OMG OMG OMG!

I'm originally from Rhode Island, so every summer I head back home for a visit. This year as with every year, I was not disappointed.

Changes, They Are A’Comin’!

I often tell people that if you live in Las Vegas – or thereabouts – and you are bored, then you are doing something wrong!

2017 – Wine, Home, Plans, #VegasStrong
